DB Damon Arnette of Fort Lauderdale appeared on the brink of a decision last weekend when he visited USC for three days with his parents. That was his second visit in a week to USC and it led to high speculation he was on the verge of joining the Gamecocks.
But while three others committed to the Gamecocks over the weekend and early this week, Arnette held off. And apparently the reason was he wants more time.
Arnette said on Thursday afternoon he will make two more visits before making a decision. And the Gamecocks are still in the running.
Yes they are still in it, Arnette said. I will visit Kentucky and Ohio State then make a decision.
Arnette did not give a date for his visit to Kentucky where hes already visited once. He is scheduled to visit Ohio State July 26th and the Buckeyes stepped up with an offer to him today.
